Overview

Business-friendly digs in downtown Panama City, with a lavish spa and a huge lagoon-style pool

The Lowdown

The centrally located, 186-room InterContinental Miramar Panama is a relaxing escape from the bustling city, with easy access to downtown attractions, the business distrcit and the historic and trendy Casco Viejo neighborhood. The guestrooms overlook both the ocean and the mesmerizing, skyscraper-laden skyline along Panama Bay, and have a modern look and feel thanks to wooden or beige leather headboards and beds wrapped in crisp white linens. A slew of big resort–style amenities provide opportunities for some R&R, including tennis courts, a full-service spa/fitness center complete with Jacuzzis, Turkish baths and saunas, and a free-form pool crisscrossed by pedestrian bridges. When hunger strikes, the aptly named Bayview restaurant serves classic Central American dishes such as ceviche and Panamanian stew.

In the Area

Start your day in the sultry capital with an ice cream at Granclement, which uses French artisanal recipes for its range of unusual flavors, such as ginger and basil. While in Casco Viejo, take a guided tour of the presidential palace, Palacio de las Garzas, a 17th-century landmark with an Andalusian courtyard, then do some people watching at the bustling fish market before heading upstairs to the diner-style restaurant, where you can nosh on some of the just-caught fare from downstairs. Spend the rest of the afternoon at the Miraflores Locks, watching giant freighters navigate the Panama Canal — a surprisingly mesmerizing sight.

Best place to stay in Panama
pinkcarper

What a great hotel! The place is so well located, beautifully decorated and most of all, has the best staff ever. We got a great upgrade and stayed at their penthouse. WOW!!! What a great apartment, completely worthy the money. Our reservation allowed us to the Club House entry, great food and delicious wine. The swimming pool was excellent!!! Just the right temperature and wonderful environment. The breakfast buffet was to die for, ask for a good omelette. Ms. Dúvis, checked us in on our arrival, her welcome and warm smile made all the difference. The manager, Mr. Calvo, was so understanding of our late late checkout and invited us for drinks and snacks at the bar while we waited to head to the airport. The must stay in Panama City.

Panamazing!!

Excellent service, great atmosphere and probably one of the most beautiful views of the town.
Spacious rooms, well lit and comfortable.
Buffet is excellent with various foods and options for all kind of tastes.
The only thing from getting a hard 5 star rating is the elevators. a bit old and slow

Exceptional Weekend

We arrived at the hotel to be greeted by an exceptionally friendly staff. Our room was really nice and the ocean view was spectacular. The location was convenient and we felt safe walking to several restaurants in the area. The breakfast buffet was top notch and the waiters were on point. There is a very elegant looking bar as well. Seemed to be the perfect watering hole for the patrons after work. Emanuel, the bartender, provided a royal experience while sitting by the pool. I must admit that my Panama expectations were surpassed.
